Going Public

A hotel is more than just a place to sleep, and with that in mind, July sees Ian Schrager introduce one of the most anticipated launches of the year: PUBLIC, a new hotel for a new way of living in New York. The fundamental premise is that luxury should be accessible for all. The hotel is seriously stylish – it’s been designed to be simple, sophisticated and timeless, like home, but better. Great service is at its heart, delivered by “Public Advisors” dedicated to making every stay exceptional. In order to respond to modern lifestyles, the hotel has been equipped with the fastest WiFi in the city, and it’s totally free of charge. Plus there’s mobile and self-check-in; mobile keys; Apple TVs in every room; and online food ordering. And with two restaurants, three bars and a multimedia performance space, PUBLIC promises to offer the very best in world-class experiences, all under one roof. In the city that never sleeps, if you really must sleep, we don’t think you’ll find a better place to do so. (publichotels.com)
